Poetry was in the center of Chinese classical literature, in which Chinese take high pride. Du Fu’s poems, in particular, are regarded as the best of Chinese poetry, but not many publications have delved into the aesthetics and achievements that separate Du Fu from other poets of that era. A Study on Du Fu’s Pai-lu carefully examines Du Fu’s formal beauty, which has been relatively ignored by researchers. It explains poetic techniques with ample examples, allowing the general readers to have a deeper understanding of Du Fu’s poetry.
